Across from King Otto's Castle is this small crag with a handful of routes including the straight-in crack of The Falcon (5.10b) and the excellent stemming corner of The Condor (5.12a).

Despite it's relatively close location to the campground proper this can actually be a good place to get away from the crowds and sample some fun routes.

Getting There 

More or less directly south of and across the road from King Otto's Castle. A large inverted "V" is a prominent landmark. Approach time is about 10 minutes from parking near King Otto's Castle.
